Another challenge I haven't played with for a long time is CAS-ual Fridays. This week's challenge is to use autumn colours and a leaf. I chose a leaf from Paper Smooches to create this lotus blossom of autumn colours, one of my favourite Michael's sentiments and a copper brad. It actually took an embarrassingly long time to make this card - when you're relying on stamping to be the focal point of your card, it's got to be placed in the right spot (I started with a much larger white panel and then cut it down bit by bit until I was happy with where it sat on the card) and it's got to be stamped perfectly - every little flaw becomes very, very visible!
Here in Toronto, our leaves are just starting to turn. It's been a strangely cool and wet summer, so it will be interesting to see if that impacts the show of glorious-ness that we usually get in October.
